I can't believe the statement I just read from Michelle Hill, IE, "I also question why he has to be compared to Marion Berry. Why not elect him to office, we elected Keith Ellison and he hasn't done anything for us either. What is the difference?"
The difference is that Keith has been incredibly effective both in the community and in the Legislature. He almost singlehandedly started EJAM (Environmental Justice Association of MN),bringing together the most incredible collection of diverse activists. He has worked on (and passed through committee) the important issue of getting the right to vote back for felons as soon as they are out of jail and has been a consistently good vote on just about every liberal issue before the House. He is highly respected by his colleagues on both sides of the aisle. Phyllis Kahn State Rep 59B REMINDERS: 1. Be civil! Please read the NEW RULES at http://www.e-democracy.org/rules.
